Sexual Assault Prevention Annual Training
Voices for Change
- What is Voices for Change?
Voices for Change is an online learning experience designed to enable academic communities of engaged bystanders who can identify harmful situations, and have the motivation and skills needed to intervene. The training focuses on four key topic areas: Identity & Inclusion, Consent & Sexual Violence, Alcohol & Other Drugs, and Hazing & Intimidation.
- Who has to take this training?
At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, all students are expected to complete the training annually.
Please note that if you have taken this or a similar training at a previous institution, you will still need to complete the training at this institution. If you are taking classes on a satellite or branch campus, you will also need to complete this training.
- How do I complete the program?
Instructions for accessing the course are available at the University Ethics & Compliance Office - Student Training page.
- Why are all students expected to take this training annually?
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to the safety of our students and improving prevention and response to sexual misconduct. This training is among the ways we are getting more information out to all students about the policy, resources, and support services we have available in case you or someone you know needs them. This training also contains information about prevention skills and strategies and offers information to better equip you to support others. Completion of the training also satisfies the educational requirements of the Illinois Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act (110 ILCS 155) and federal law.
- How long will the training take?
The training will take about one hour to complete.
- What support is in place if I find the information in the training is difficult or triggering?
We recognize that talking about this topic can be difficult. Please know that we have resources on campus that can support you. If you want to talk to someone prior to or after taking the training module, you can contact our Confidential Resources, including the Women’s Resources Center and the Counseling Center. If you are not certain what support services you would like to connect with, you are also welcome to contact the Title IX Office at (844) 616-7978 or email the Title IX Coordinator at email@example.com. You can also check out the I Want to Talk to Someone page for more information on the different resources available.

Yes. Please contact the Title IX Office at (844) 616-7978 or email the Title IX Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an alternative due to personal history with sexual violence. You do not need to disclose the details of your personal history with sexual violence, and you will receive a follow-up email with information about the alternative and some of the important campus policies and resources discussed in the training, as well as specific information about support networks.
